Cool! What are you brewing?

I think you should check out Mild! Plus! I just need more IBU data in the next edition, even if
they're guesstimates ;)

The old recipes are quite high in hops (milds above 60 IBU), this export mild for example is
110 IBU based on estimates from brewery records: be worth playing around with the hopping
rate in a numbe...

forwards, dry-ish finish) but just floculates so well...

Not sure if they were watered down as there's lots of punters complaining about the decreasing
